Northampton Saints only secured their place in the Gallagher Premiership semi-finals on the last day of the season but after taking fourth spot, they now have a chance to upset East Midlands rivals - and table-toppers - Leicester Tigers at Welford Road.

Saints hammered Newcastle Falcons 65-26 to make the top four and although they finished 19 points behind the all-conquering Tigers, that will mean little if they can upset the odds over 80 minutes in Leicester.

The winners of this afternoon’s clash will reach the Premiership final at Twickenham next weekend, with Northampton trying to clinch a second Premiership Rugby title - to go with the crown they claimed in 2014.

Saints have appeared in nine previous Premiership semi-finals, winning just two, but are a team in form with only one defeat in their last seven league matches - during which time they have run in 40 tries.
